on Monday,April 18,2011 21:04
Facebook has announced that the company will be sharing its new data center and web design, which is 38 percent more energy-efficient than other centers, with other Internet companies, according to the Oakland Tribune.
The social networking website has created a new data center in Prineville, Oregon, which has lowered its energy costs by 24 percent. Facebook is naming the program, which allows other businesses access to the center's design, the Open Compute Project. The company expects that this project will help diminish the massive electricity consumption. According to the news source, data centers are costing the country $4.5 billion annually, and that number is expected to double in the next five years.
The new center features taller servers, which create energy-reducing heat sinks and leave room for fans that keep the systems cool.
The job market for individuals in this growing profession is expected to increase significantly. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of web design positions is expected to increase by 23 percent between 2008 and 2018, and the demand for database administrators is expected to grow by 20 percent between those same years.
